Darby's Story...
Well hello to you, thanks for checking me out. My name is Darby and I'm a male Cairn Terrier blend weighing 10 pounds. I don't know how I ended up in a big old scary shelter where adoptable dogs are euthanized because there are just too many of them. Thankfully I got out of there and was saved by a wonderful rescue called CARE. They also found me a foster home in San Antonio Texas where I've met some other dogs other little dogs. At first can be standoffish but do well with laid back dogs. I ignore cats and I really love belly rubs and snuggling and following my humans all over to make sure that everything is good with them. I'm ready for my forever home and can be transported to you in the US or Canada.

Please apply to adopt here: and CARE will be in touch with you ASAP!

This dog was rescued from a kill shelter or the streets and has been evaluated for medical and temperament to prepare for a forever home and is in a foster home in San Antonio, Texas* and is ready to fly to its final destination once adopted. The $550 adoption fee** covers spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccinations, micro-chip and air transport. Please call CARE at 210-858-8422 or email

*CARE RESCUE IS A 501C3 NON PROFIT and is located in San Antonio, TX where we have an extremely serious pet overpopulation situation and four hundred plus adoptable pets lose their lives in the shelter and on the streets every week. We have been trying to save as many as we can for the past 6 years and with your adoption, we can help save even more.
**This is the base fee for transportation and varies according to weight of the dog and location. Flying to Canada requires an additional customs fee.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Darby, a Hartford Cairn Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cairn Terrier for sale in Hartford, or seeking a Cairn Terrier dog from a breeder in Hartford.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hartford already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Hartford breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Cairn Terrier breeders who help with Cairn Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hartford paves the way for another one to be saved.
